Daliya Upma (Cracked Wheat Upma)

Cracked wheat or Daliya is a wheat product made from whole raw wheat kernels. It is easily available in any Indian grocery stores and makes a healthy dietary option. Apart from Upma, Daliya contributes to many interesting recipes like Daliya pudding, salad, lapshi or even Daliya khichadi. Daliya Upma is the simplest recipe of all these and tastes awesome.
